Retail auditing is one of the most complex operations of any business involved with consumer goods, mostly because it involves a large number of people and data. Management can easily get lost among all the data that retail auditors, field reps and other mobile agents - in addition to customers - generate.
Retail audit activities at the point of sale (PoS) are varied and include:
- Verifying compliance with sales, marketing and branding strategies: Auditing product pricing and placement, planogram and promotional compliance, visual merchandising
- Tracking and monitoring: On-shelf availability, orders and returns, competitor prices and promotions
- In-store customer surveys
